At least three people have been killed and houses burnt in Difenda Balue, a village in Dikome Balue subdivision in Ndian division of the restive South West region of Cameroon, MMI has gathered.
Those killed, reports say included, Nelson Mindako, Chairman of Difenda Balue traditional council, a certain Sakwe, and an unidentified young man popularly known as Chopper Chopper.
Locals say, they were killed by soldiers loyal to the government of Cameroon who stormed the village Friday August 26, 2022 in a raid. Theyr motive, reports say, was allegedly to fish separatist Ambazonia fighters.
